Genaro Codina - composer


By omar.codina - Posted on 02 December 2009

I am trying to document my link to Genaro Codina, composer of Marcha Zacatecas. He was born in the city of Zacatecas in 1852 to Santiago Codina and Maria Dolores Fernandez. Family history has it that he was 'primo hermano' (first cousin) to my great grandfather, Mucio Codina. That would make Genaro's father and Mucio's father brothers and their father would be Jose Eufracio Codina.

Jose Eufracio married in Jerez, Zacatecas and had several children there but I found no record for Santiago Codina. FamilySearch IGI has an unsourced record for Santiago's marriage in Zacatecas, Zacatecas in 1851 but I have been unable to find the church record in the Family History Library films. My search has been hampered by missing years in the films.

If anyone has run across any of there names in your research, I would greatly appreciate your help.

My family said the same thing about toribio romo and mu granfather. They saiD that they were 3rd cousins. I did the research and found them to be 3rd cousins three times and another link of 3rd cousin once removed. Sometimes there so many links between individuals That they seem closer related than they actually are.

Hi Omar,

I don't have any new information for you but your Surname caught my attention since the only time I have seen it is when Godina is mispelled or read incorrectly... Except, I have heard of the composer, Genaro Codina and I believe there is also a city by the same name...

Out of curiosity, what is the name of Jose Eufracio Codina's spouse and date of marriage? Also, what is the name of Mucio Codina's spouse? I too have family from Jerez, Zacatecas and I am just curious if my family crossed your family's path...

Thanks,
Angie Godina

Hi Angie,

Interesting how these two surnames are so similar. Please look under the 'Files' tab at the top of the page and find Codina. I have a partial genealogy register (pdf document) for Jose Eufracio Codina. See if any of the names listed look familiar. After you see the names, please let me know what you think.

Thanks....Omar
